, my baby, my baby." a witness testifying testified, she said, in the moments before hassan shot her, giving the distinct impression he heard the cries for help and still shot her. hassan objected to that. he asked the judge to remind the witness she was under oath. the witness was asked if she wanted to change any have heard of her testimony and she defiantly said no, she did not want to change a word. he is facing 13 counts of premeditated murder and 32 counts of attempted pre- meditated murder. 45 counts in total. >> one last question. what is your sense of how long this trial may go? >> it is a fairly quick pace. 15 witnesses today. the original estimate was up to three months. the way it is looking now, i spoke with a military legal expert who thought the prosecution might be done within about three weeks. he has said -- two witnesses, one of whom may be himself. we do not know yet. we do not -- there is speculation he would take the stand himself, which would be an interesting moment, because he would open himself up to cross examination from prosecutors, which defendants very
